Professional wrestler Hulk Hogan has settled a talk show host and two other lawsuits allegedly involved in leaking videos of his sex and using racist language.
The Tampa Bay Times reports that full details of the settlement are unclear.
The lawsuit filed in Pinellas County seeks compensation in excess of $ 15,000, but does not specify the amount of compensation. The lawsuit does state that Hogan (terry Bollea) received $ 140 million in compensation in the last lawsuit against Gaoke, but settled with $ 31 million after the company went bankrupt.
Mike Calta, who hosts a morning drive talk show heard across Tampa Bay on Cox’s 102.5-FM The Bone, was among those sued. He could only be reached via his verified Twitter account, the paper reported.
“My understanding is the lawsuit was amicably resolved by Cox and Hogan on terms that are confidential,” he wrote in a direct message. “I’ll address the rest Monday on my show.”
Court documents show the judge has closed the case, but not the exact disposition.
Court orders signed by defendants Matt Loyd, a former radio personality known as “Spice Boy,” his ex wife Tasha Nicole Carrega and Los Angeles lawyer Keith Davidson were filed on Thursday.
All three were accused in the suit of conspiring to leak and sell the footage to TMZ and thedirty.com. Davidson was the man who met Bollea at the Sand Pearl in Clearwater to receive a check for $300,000 to stop the leak of the tape while FBI agents secretly watched. Federal prosecutors declined to file criminal charges in that case.
The permanent injunctions state that all three are banned from possessing or sharing any recordings of Bollea “naked, having sex, and/or having private conversations in a private bedroom,” or could be held in contempt.
A letter sent to judge Linda R. Allan by Bollea’s attorney referenced a “confidential settlement reached between the parties.”
